A featured image widget is a dynamic widget which adds an image in your layout.
The image which this widget displays is not one that you upload into the layout. Instead, it uses the featured image which has been assigned to your WordPress post, page, or ProPhoto gallery which is viewed.
When you want to create one template for many different pages, but need part of the layout to show a unique image from each page/post, use the featured image widget into your template.
(for featured images as backgrounds, see the background color and image guide instead)
If you want a stylized graphic along the side of each of your pricing pages, you can make one template with a featured image widget in a side column, like this shows:
Then, each page which uses the template will display the page’s unique featured image in that part of the layout, as seen in this example page:
This eliminates the need to create a separate page template for each page. One template can be created with the featured image widget showing the unique image from each WordPress page or blog post.
